Balboa Avenue Station Area Specific Plan EIR
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preperation

Document Description
The project is to establish a specific plan that would increase residential density by redesignating and rezoning lands to allow for transited-oriented public and private development adjacent to the Balboa Ave trolley station. The project would require an amendment to the Pacific Beach Community Plan. The specific plan provides recommendations and guidelines for new mixed use development and improvements to the public ROW to develop access to the Balboa Ave Station to capitalize on the new regional transit connection in the area. The specific plan promotes increasing transportation choices, decreasing dependence on single occupancy vehicles, and reducing traffic congestion at local intersections and roadways. The specific plan would redesignate approx 51 acres of commercial land uses to the community village land use designation within the Pacific Beach community. The community village land use designation would allow for the development of high density multi-family housing in a mixed-use setting and commercial, service, and civic uses. The specific plan would also identify multi-modal improvements to increase bicycle, pedestrian, and transit access to the Balboa Ave trolley station.
